This is a video about our son Nathan who has Autism.(Please don't forget to rate this video).
Nathan was a premature baby, he was born 3 months early (27 weeks gestation), weighing in at only 910 grams. Nathan spent the first 3 months of his little life in hospital. Nathan had to fight for his life when he was only 5 days old as he was very sick. Thank God he made it and is still with us today. He had heaps of test and probes within that three months and prior to leaving the hospital had to have a double hernia operation.
Nathan was a regular visitor at the Royal Womens and Royal Childrens hospital in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia for the first two years of his life.
As Nathan grew we started to notice abnormalities with his behaviour. By the time he was 2 years old we knew had severe Autism and as a result was very low functioning. We wanted to be pro-active about this and so we wanted to find out about anything we could that would help our son. As a result my wife came across a number of therapies that have helped our son out a lot, some more successful than others. The bio-medical side of treatment can be very stressful but is very rewarding. Nathan has come along way as a result of the treatment plan that he has been on. The ten minute video can't show you everything but enough to see how a child with Autism can improve dramatically with the right care. Nathan is still on the road to recoverying from autism but we need your help.
